Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Roger Rabbit Original Animation Cel

original production material

A rare animation cell used in the Bob Hoskins classic Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the pioneering film which combined animation with live action to create an outstanding movie. the film, Eddie Valiet (Bob Hoskins) helps Roger Rabbit (Charles Fleischer) prove his innocence, but discovers that Judge Doom (Christopher Lloyd) has a much more sinister plot in the works.

Eddie Valiant knows what happens to Roger Rabbit when he drinks whiskey, so a shot is just the thing to bring him free from Judge Doom´s evil grip! Roger´s cheeks are inflated, and his ears are just starting to propel in this hand painted cel from the movie. Presented on a photographic print background for reference. Handpainted, we can match on screen the outlines of Roger´s Whiskers as we can see in the photographic comparison (see photo). Incredibly the top cell has a white “Walt Disney Company ” stamp top dictating its provenance.  

A separate cel painting was made for each fraction of movement of an animated character in this film. Effects like sparkles and shadows were also created, each on a separate cel. Each character cel, along with the appropriate effects , was photographed over a frame of the live-action film.  The result was a stunningly lifelike image.  When all the single images were combined and projected on the screen in rapid succession, the manic world of Roger Rabbit and the other Toons became seamlessly integrated with the "real" world - or, at least, with the world of Hollywood in the 1940s, as recreated by movie magic.  "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?" won four Academy Awards for its technical wizardry and reigned as the undisputed box office champion for 1988.  It is considered a milestone in the history of animation. Framed by Circle Fine Art Corporation.
